Tips On How To Start Shooting Nudes-NSFW

I spend most of the last week finishing up my first Ebook. This is it!

I thought I would share a portion of it with you.

Tips on how to start photographing nude and boudoir photography


“Most models are great. They usually show up on time, or a few minutes late….. They are usually prepared, but once in a while, one will show up without preparing. When this happens, be nice. If you are paying the model, I would consider renegotiating. If it’s trade  do the best you can and reconsider if you want to do trade next time. 

There are a lot of options and ways to pose nude models. Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, the model might be moving, laying down, or standing. For females, 3 quarter poses for standing and sitting are usually what I prefer. They make the model look slim. 

One thing that I don’t do a lot but can easily be done in photo shop to give your images a more erotic feel is increasing the pupil size. Some times have the model make a soft “O” With her mouth also works but this can also be easily overdone. Be careful with the “O”.

Message me to sign up for a personal photo lesson!

It feels good to finally have one done. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be and it’s a short ebook but I think it’s beautifully done. I will write another longer ebook on the how to shoot nudes soon but I need to finish the ebooks on Marketing, Film photography and portrait photography first. Anyhow. Maybe you want to buy it? I hope so.
